HOUSTON (AP) - Brian Hoyer is done with the team’s concussion protocol and will start for the Houston Texans on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

Hoyer was injured early in the third quarter on Nov. 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals and sat out on Sunday against the New York Jets.

T.J. Yates took over when Hoyer was hurt against the Bengals and threw the game-winning touchdown in a 10-6 victory. He had two touchdown passes on Sunday to help the Texans to a 24-17 win over the Jets, giving the team three wins in a row for the first time since 2012.

The Texans (5-5) are tied with the Indianapolis Colts for first place in the AFC South.
